Nightwalks are special evening interpretive programs offered Friday nights in July and August (for 2013). This program is usually offered twice in the week between Christmas and New Year's (due to lack of staffing not in 2013). Participants are required to be silent during the one hour walk that allows visitors to step back in time. This walk is not recommended for children or others who can not participate without talking or whispering. There is a charge for this program ($6/adult and $3/child or senior with pass) and reservations are required (call 505-672-3861 x 517 during business hours).
